    - Everett Pollard

    "Ari Pollack provided our company a level of attention over a 10 year period of time that is just beyond words. He has, during several issues, assessed the situation and cut to the issue at hand without the need of going to court. I have had many lawyers over the years, but not one has even come close to his abilities or level of professional support."
    - Rick L. Proulx, Sr.

Simply put, we would not be nearly as successful without Mr. Pollack and GCG."
    - Kendall Buck
    Home Builders & Remodelers Assoc of NH
